The journeys of Apollo 11, 12, 14, and 15 are all chronicled for their successful missions to the moon. But, as the Tom Hanks staring film Apollo 13 reminds us, there was another mission that wasn't quite as successful and in fact it was nearly an utter disaster.

This week on Science on the Radio, Dr. Marvin Druger tells us who was a part of Apollo 13, what went wrong, and what did we learn from this mission?

It's another exploration into the final frontier with Marvin Druger this week on Science on the Radio. Nearly three decades ago The Hubbel Telescope was launched into space and since that time has been a vital tool for research.

Coming in March of 2021, The James Web Telescope will be launched. What's so special about this shiny new toy ? Find out this week on Science on the Radio.

Gravitational Waves are disturbances in the curvature of spacetime, generated by accelerated masses, that propagate as waves outward from their source at the speed of light.  If that sounds like a mouthful you'd be right. But don't worry Dr. Marvin Druger is here this week to make sure we all have a better understanding of how gravitational waves work and the origin of their study.

That's this week's Science on the Radio.
